    Ah the memories, being 11 years old loving this band, buying the 7″ singles and had the Strung Up album on cassette.
    Great show as always… but how about the John Otway’s Blockbuster cover have a look on YouTube it’s rather tongue in cheek.

  2. I really really like the Reach Out cover. The driving rock style fits it really well.

    BTW, I tried to go to ThinkGeek from Coverville, but I don’t see the icon you’re talking about from my Mac or my iPad.

    *Sigh* Third version that’s popped up here, and everybody seems to try to be as true to the original “Fox on the Run” as possible. I want to hear somebody do their own take on it. I think MGMT would be great.

  4. i know I’m really late, but I’m revisiting Coverville after a really long break.
    Brian! No!
    Sweet is Andy Scott’s baby, and has been since they spilt with Brian Connolly. He was originally required to call it AS Sweet, but now just uses Sweet. Steve Priest did put a Sweet covers band together, which is sometimes doing the rounds, but that’s all it is – and a poor one at that. No original songs.
    Andy, on the other hand, leads a world-class band and releases a new album every few years.

    Anyway, New York Connection is Andy’s work, not Steve’s.

  5. P.S. It was Steve Priest who sang “We just haven’t got a clue what to do!”, not Mick Tucker.
